Certain crystals carry the vibrations necessary to protect us from the effects of other people’s negative energies. These stones tend to be fairly dark in color, have a powerful resonance and help to ground us. Whereas the delicate, ephemeral shades of stones such as blue Lace Agate or Moonstone emit a soft, soothing and nurturing vibration, other crystals are best for protecting yourself against negative energies, entities and vibrations. Some of the best stones for this kind of protection include: Black Tourmaline, Pyrite, Amethyst, Black Obsidian, Hematite, Blue Kyanite and Fluorite.
It is worth mentioning here that negative energies do not always come from outside. Sometimes we indulge in self-criticism and harmful self-talk which saps our confidence and self-esteem to the point of causing physical harm to ourselves. Constantly telling yourself how worthless you are will eventually lead to mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. It can also lead to physical illnesses such as migraine, constant colds and sore throats and a poorly functioning immune system. Investing in your own well-being is never an indulgence, it is a necessity. Happily, it can also be an extremely enjoyable process!
